In the constantly evolving world of cybersecurity, it’s important for businesses and organizations to stay ahead of cybercriminals and protect themselves from harm. One tool that has proven effective in this effort is the honeypot, which is a fake network or system that is designed to appear as a real target, but is actually isolated and monitored.
So, what exactly is a honeypot, and how does it work? A honeypot is essentially a fake network or system that is set up to look like a real target, but is actually isolated and monitored. When an attacker targets the honeypot, they are unknowingly entering a controlled environment where their actions can be tracked and recorded. This allows the organization to gather intelligence about the attacker’s tactics, techniques, and procedures, which can help them stay ahead of future attacks and protect themselves from harm.
At TrapTech we are creating honeypots designed to closely mimic real systems and are typically used to track and identify attackers.
